Why I don’t roll (or blog) on Shabbos

Shabbos (or Shabbat, in modern Hebrew) is the Jewish Sabbath, which starts from Friday right before sundown, and carries through until about an hour after nightfall on Saturday evening.  During this time, traditional Jews refrain from certain activities classified as “labor” – in other words, it is a “day of rest”.  No iPhones, no laptop, no Twitter (unless you set it up to run in advance, which could be the subject of a whole other post).

So yes, I am, like Mr. Sobchak,  “shomer Shabbos” – and while there are 39 different types of work that are technically forbidden, I’ll let this mug tie it all together with Walter’s top 3:
